Project retro racer

Post  craig@STW on Sun 12 Jun 2011, 1:07 pm

Ha Ha, my latest toy, this ones a little cheaper than the last one though Rolling Eyes

take one cheap road bike from the local paper...



add one classic racing green paint job...



and a few old style parts and we get a nice retro looking cycle inspired by the old path racers of years gone by...





still need to finish things off before i can ride it, maybe get some tan wall tyres, leather saddle bag ???

now, where did i put my tweed jacket and long socks ??? Laughing

I wondered where I left my chopper!!

I do know what I did with my Paris Galibier though and am still kicking myself for giving it away.

you see, thats why kids are so unfit these days. all these light aluminium bikes make them lazy.

if they had to lug around a few tonnes of Raleigh Grifter, it would do them the world of good Laughing Laughing Laughing

Spent many happy days on that bike, with a lolly pop stick running across the spokes on the rear tyre Smile
